Director Ribhu Dasgupta's Bollywood movie "Te3n," starring Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vidya Balan, has received positive reviews from the audience around the world.
"Te3n" is an Indian thriller film, which is an official remake of South Korean movie "Montage." Suresh Nair, Ritesh Shah and Bijesh Jayarajan have written the screenplay for the movie, while Ribhu Dasgupta penned the story. Filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh, who has acquired its remake rights, has jointly produced the movie with Gulab Singh Tanwar, Hyunwoo Thomas Kim, Suresh Nair, Sameer Rajendran and Gauri Sathe.
The story of "Te3n" is about a woman, who loses her daughter in a kidnapping case that was never solved. Eight years later, a kidnapper copies the unsolved case exactly. A cop (Vidya Balan), a priest (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) and a vengeful man (Amitabh Bachchan) set out to investigate this kidnapping case. How they unravel the mystery forms the crux of the story.
The audience say "Te3n" has an interesting and realistic story and writers have done wonderful script work for the film. The director has got good grip of the narration. Though it is slow and dragging in parts, the director manages to keep the audience engaged right from the beginning to end. He makes the film-goers watch sitting on the edge of their seats, biting their nails.
The viewers add Amitabh Bachchan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui have delivered brilliant performances, which are the highlights of "Te3n." Vidya Balan has limited screen presence, but manages to impress the viewers. Clinton Cerejo's music and Tushar Kanti Ray's camera work are the big attractions on the technical front.
We bring you some viewers' verdict shared on Twittter. Here is the live update of the 'Te3n' movie review by audience:

A slowburn of a thriller that doesn't let you lose focus. #TE3N is yet another three prong acting masterclass. Must watch this weekend.
Super start to a super suspenseful movie! Edge of the seat thriller! #AmitabhBachchan you continue to floor us! #TE3N Not much of #VidyaBalan in first half but the movie is so far super brilliant! Clearly second half will be hers! #TE3N Story is the King always! And #SujoyGhosh proves it with every outing! #TE3N And #VidyaBalan is the hero the movie already! She is one super actor! #TE3N

My review of Ribhu Dasgupta's #TE3N: so thoroughly engaging in its observations on age, escapism, love and revenge
#TE3N Interesting Family Thriller inspired from Korean Film #Montage Awesome performances @SrBachchan @Nawazuddin_S
Durga Maii!! @Pinku1109
#TE3N #Te3nOutToday is a very slow film. Fat and old Vidya Balan looks uncomfortable. In some scenes she looked obese and very ugly
